The Joy is Formidable

Maybe it's because I'm Canadian and was subjected to 6 years of French in school, but I always pronounced this band's name with a French accent. When Damian from Fucked Up played thier video on Wedge, he pronounced it with a North American accent. Anyone have any idea how the band pronounces their name?

Not that it matters, they're called The Joy Formidable and they've released a great full-length album.

Here's "Whirring", "Cradle" and "A Heavy Abacus" from that album, The Big Roar.
